Raf Lopez is a runner and triathlete living in Calgary, Canada with experience running and racing all over the world. First drawn to the sport of triathlon by the amazing sense of community and accomplishment it celebrates, he raced his first triathlon just 4 years ago in 2010 and fell in love with competition and sport right away.
Since then Raf has raced in over a dozen half marathons and several Iron distance races. In 2012 he represented Canada as an elite amateur at the 2012 Long Distance Triathlon World Championships in Spain. And just last August Raf competed in the first Ironman race to be held in Whistler and experienced the region's beauty over a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride, and 42.2km run.
As a Lululemon Run Ambassador, Raf is passionate about sharing his pursuits and sports with others. He loves to hear the stories of athletes who have challenged themselves to accomplish goals that they previously thought to be beyond their reach. His belief is that by sharing positivity through our physical and spiritual pursuits with others we can inspire others to do the same and make our own corners of the world a better place.
Running with Raf you can look forward to his curiosity about your goals, where you've been, and where you're going, and you'll receive encouragement and advice on how to pursue them with passion.
